Dont just pin it (day 2)

Well for Day 2 I would like to show you my mantle. 
It was very simple but i am loving it.

I saw this idea on pinterest a while back and i knew i wanted to this for the holiday. 
I have had this black wire lantern for years (i actually have 2 but i keep it outside) and you are supposed to put a candle in it but it never looked right to me it seemed to small in the large lantern. 

I have become obsessed with this mesh ribbon this year, i wrapped almost all my tree with it (i have 6 trees this year) and added some to my mantle too, i just kind of weave it around until i like it

these Santa bulbs are from Walmart a few years ago i {heart} Santa! 

The vases are from pier1 they are used all the time but i love them during the holidays especially

Now this banner is also homemade but not by me =) , my very talented friend Tina made me this last year and i LOVE it!
So with the exception of the mesh ribbon(which is $7 for a huge spool at Sams club) the rest of the items i already had
